    Easy Choice

    Extremely easy and smooth process. Everyone was very helpful. This gun is just smooth with little kickback. Might have to buy another.

    So I wanted a light weight ar to have for speed shooting. Little heavy up front but that is from the rail. But this gun has no recoil that all. Put 5 shots in a 6in target from 10 yards and did it rather fast.

    I've been shopping around for my first AR - 15 and come across this beautiful piece. It's eating everything I feed it without issues and shoots great! She's everything!

    Just received my new rifle last week and just returned from our local outdoor range. Shot 15 rounds for zeroing optic at 50 meters and another 15 rounds of reflexive fire at 25 meters. Rifle is very well balanced and shot very well! Well worth the price! Optic is "okay" but hard to see reticle in bright settings during reflexive fire.
